The Florida Digital Humanities Consortium (FLDH) will host its 2nd annual conference at Flagler College in St. Augustine, FL on Friday, March 27, 2020. FLDH is a collective of institutions in the State of Florida that seeks to promote an understanding of the humanities in light of digital technologies and research. Founded in 2014, FLDH provides a platform for studying and discussing digital tools, methods, and pedagogies as well as educates teachers, faculty, and the public about the multiple, interdisciplinary ways humanities research and computing impact our world. Each year at the annual conference, FLDH members and guests meet to hear current research, discuss issues of interest, and set goals for future collaboration and digital humanities research.
The conference will last all day and include academic research and teaching presentations in the morning and early afternoon, followed by a THATCamp session and a plenary talk and dinner. FLDH seeks proposals for papers, posters, lightning rounds, roundtables, and panel presentations on any topic related to digital humanities. We welcome proposals not only from those in higher education, including students, faculty and staff, but also from cultural institutions and other organizations doing work in the digital humanities.
Individual abstracts of 200-250 words should be submitted for talks of 15 minutes.
A panel proposal of 150-250 words by the panel organizer(s) and individual abstracts for 3-5 papers can be submitted for panel presentations.
Posters, lightning rounds, and roundtables can be proposed with brief descriptions of 150 words.
All proposals should include name, affiliation, contact email, and needed IT equipment.
